David Duchovny Engages in Californication

Showtime now has a title for its new comedy series starring David Duchovny and debuting in August. Californication, which starts lensing in June and costars Natascha McElhone (The Truman Show), Madeleine Martin (Hope & Faith), Madeline Zima (The Nanny) and Evan Handler (Sex and the City), concerns Hank Moody, a novelist struggling to raise his 13-year-old daughter (Martin) while still carrying a torch for his ex-girlfriend (McElhone). Says Showtime's press release, "[Hank's] obsession with truth-telling and self-destructive behavior — drinks, drugs and relationships — are both destroying and enriching his career."
